I have just watched the video made by, it appears, some of the townsfolk of Quinhagak. I was deeply moved by the simplicity of the video and the joy apparent in the faces and I just wanted to commend you for your efforts. I believe that everyone who watches this will be blessed so I ask Almighty God to pour out his Blessings on your people and your town.
I am a retired police officer who lives in Busselton, Western Australia and I spent a fair amount of my time in the Pilbara and the Kimberley in WA, two areas that have temperatures in excess of 50 degrees celsius, somewhat different than the video shows of your temperatures. I know the difficulties that can arise in remote communities and I pray for yours, that the peace and joy of our Saviour will fill your town.
Once again, bless you for the video, Trev Adams

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed the Halleluja Chorus video created by the 5th grade class (who are now in 6th grade). Such a lot of imagination and work went into creating the video and it's just wonderful that so many in the village were part of it. The video first appeared on Utube and is now getting popular on Facebook, a popular social network on the internet. Thanks again!
We're in the lower 48, living in the mountains near Orofino, Idaho (northcentral Idaho). If you look on a map, it's not far from Lewiston. We enjoy it here and have bear, mountain lions, coyotes, wolves, deer, elk, moose in our forest. We pick a lot of huckleberries and wild blackberries and mushrooms before heavy winter snows come. Our summers can be pretty hot.
Once again, thank you for the wonderful video!!!

I am a professional musician and composer and web designer living in the the Delta region (Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers) of the San Francisco Bay Area. I received your wonderful video via an e-mail message from the poet laureate of the City of Alameda, Mary Rudge.

I helped with the music for an interfaith Christmas Eve service for Occupy Oakland. I put together a "Christmas Mix" CD, and would love to share it with you. It contains two of my own compositions, as you will see, as well as two "Hallelujah"'s -- one by Leonard Cohen and interpreted by the marvelous German trio, Time for 3, and a "Soulful" version of Handel's, produced by Quincy Jones.

According to the liturgical calendar, Christmas is not over yet! Thank you so very much for your Holiday gift (I celebrate Chanukah and Solstice as well), and please enjoy my modest offering:


Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that "The arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice."

May it bend ever more surely in the coming year.
